Message from a Client

“I just wanted to send a huge appreciation text! I am so grateful even though we only had a few sessions. I am in a much better place. I thank you for your kindness, patience and gentleness. If at any time I need to come back I will let you know but for now I am going great! Hope life is going well for you. God bless, Katrina M.”


When the client was contacted to gain consent to publish her feedback on the website, she added, “…what I noticed in my sessions, that I didn’t anywhere else, is that I don’t need to have the answers. Answers to label my thoughts, feelings, what to do in a situation. I just had to feel what it is that I was going though.

I used to panic. I didn’t know how to control my emotions and that I would burst out random inappropriate emotions and thoughts but is because I wasn’t trusting those emotions could be good….emotions help us be human and connected…we make mistakes and life is hard, complicated and it breaks us down. But counselling gets to the root. With the trust of someone who genuinely wants to walk you through it and to support you and show love to your situation.

Everyone is scared of being judged but in Nam-Hee’s sessions I not once felt judged, in fact, I felt I could finally be and say all I needed so that I could be free of the past”
